This lesson is gonna take a little focus away from playing and instead try to help you know your way around the guitar a little bit better.
The guitar is notoriously a difficult instrument to visualize and because of that many guitarist's of even advanced ability can't confidently name the notes across the fretboard.
As I state in the video, the absolute best way to get your entire fretboard absolutely nailed is to learn to read sheet music. It's not a total must, but it will thoroughly teach you your fretboard quickly.
Having said that, there are many players who can't read a note of sheet music but know their fretboard quite well. All it really takes is an actual curiosity on the notes that you are playing when playing through a tune and so forth.
The popularity of guitar TAB in magazines and TAB music books leads to a lot of guitarist's just thinking of the fretboard as a bunch of numbers. So here in this 2-part series I will introduce a few simple techniques that you can use to try and begin to learn the fretboard. After that, it's up to you to stay consistent with it and try and figure out notes everyday.
There is a brief little theory primer at the beginning of the video to get you started, then we start to take a look at the fretboard.
Have fun and let me know if you have any questions or comments!!
